"But I will stay on at Ephesus until Pentecost, 9 because a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me."
1 Corinthian 16:8-9 NIV
The Apostle Paul is explaining his itinerary as he writes to the believers in Corinth. He mentions he wants to visit them but that he has discovered while in Ephesus
“… a great door for effective ministry…”
He is saying that he will stay there and continue to minister because of this great door of "effective ministry" the Lord has opened to him.
After much prayer and consultation with the AGWM leadership for our next 4 year term and becoming aware of the needs at Builders International. We believe this is the "...door..." the Lord is opening for Patti and me.
We have been asked to join the the Assemblies of God entity called Builders International. We will be apart of what they do world wide. We are so excited to announce that as of January 1, 2023 it is official we are going to work with
Builders International: Ministry update: Click
Wendell will be hosting teams in many countries around the world. Builders has 40 projects globally and while not all will need him involved on the ground, there are several projects this year that he will be connecting with and hosting teams in those countries where needed.
This “…open door…” for me (Wendell) is something I did not think was possible. As I have had several meetings with the base office in Springfield, MO I see how the Lord has opened a door that fits my gifting and calling as a missionary. It is so exciting and surreal to see how the Lord has gone before us and
prepared the way for “…effective ministry…”
Patti’s health is good... She had 5 heart procedures in 2022 and is recovering for the last one that was the most evasive. Her heart is in great shape over all. The issues that the Dr.'s are concerned with are the extra beats.
The last procedure was a Cardio Ablation that will help stop the extra beats
Patti will have more energy and strength...
Patti and I are finishing up itineration:
We still need $5000 cash and $500 in monthly pledges.
Will you pray with us, because as Paul says above there
are enemies that are and will oppose us:
1. As we transition to this huge open door with Builders International
2. Health and Healing for Patti and Me
3. Finish Itineration, we need $5000 cash and 500 in monthly pledges
4. The projects that Builders International has including Slovakia
5. The Ukrainian refugees in Slovakia, Poland and surrounding counties.
We pray for you that this New Year will be blessed all year as we all go thru the
“…open doors…” the Lord gives us.
Wendell & Patti
